Happy Birthday, The Shining!

Happy 37th Birthday, THE SHINING! Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Stephen King's THE SHINING was released on this day back in 1980. It is now widely regarded by many as the best horror film of all-time. However, in a very famous story, author Stephen King is not a fan of the film. I remember my first taste of THE SHINING actually came by way of a short sequence...

Where in the Horror are they Now? Shelley Duvall!

SHELLEY DUVALL THEN : There are performances in horror that truly stand out for audiences. Good or bad, they leave an impression, and today I thought would be nice to revisit one of those iconic turns. Yet for this accomplished actress, it is only fair we start from the beginning. After all, she is a unique talent who is also an accomplished producer of...

It's the Booze Talkin', They'd better not f*ck up The Shining sequel!

Who will ever forget the first time they witnessed THE SHINING. This masterwork from the legendary Stanley Kubrick is a terrifying journey that features an iconic performance from Jack Nicholson, and some of the creepiest imagery you will ever see - blood gushing out of that elevator still creeps me out. This 1980 classic is on many a cinephile’s list of favorites, but not everybody...

Where in the Horror are they Now? Danny Lloyd!

DANNY LLOYD THEN: The life of a child actor can be tough. Many youngsters discover a brutal dose of reality once they grow up and face the real world. After all, you have agents and money men fawning all over you because they can make a buck off of you, but what happens when you aren’t an adorable tyke anymore? While there are always exceptions to the rule,...

Dissecting Director George Miller!

DIRECTOR GEORGE MILLER! Few visionary filmmakers have stamped their own brand-name on a truly original body of work as fiercely as Australian born George Miller has. Really. Miller and MAD MAX are synonymous, interchangeable even, likely due to the abject creative control the filmmaker has held over the property since 1979. Remember, Miller conceived of, wrote and...

JACK NICHOLSON's performance in STANLEY KUBRICK's 1980 masterpiece  (in my book anyways) THE SHINING is completely insane!

Dissecting Stanley Kubrick!

STANLEY KUBRICK! If there were ever a Mount Rushmore of feted film directors - American or otherwise - the late great Stanley Kubrick would have to be interminably etched on its facade. In my eyes, the all but peerless visual maestro is right up there with Welles, Hitchcock and perhaps D. W. Griffith...certainly in terms of the way they all molded, altered and...

Top 10 Best Movie Devils!

What is it about the devil that fascinates us so much? A lofty thought, sure, but if you think about it, every six months or so it seems a new movie comes out that, if not explicitly tries to tackle such a mystery, flat out boasts the word devil in the title. In the last few years alone: DEVIL, THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL, DEVIL'S PASS, THE DEVIL'S DOUBLE, HERE COMES THE DEVIL,...
